You Have To Pick One

It’s just not possible to choose both — not entirely, anyway. If you’re taking things like God’s existence or miracles or the efficacy of prayer on faith alone, then you’re compromising your intellectual integrity. Religious people love to tell you otherwise (“I’m religious because I’m intelligent!”) but it’s all rhetoric with no substance. If you want to be religious, it requires giving up some degree of critical thought. They won’t admit that, but I don’t see any way around it.
